DIRECTIONS

  • Mix the flour, salt and pepper together.
  • Pound this mixture into the meat well.
  • Cut the meat into 4-6 pieces.
  • Heat the oil in a heavy skillet and cook the steaks in batches over medium-high heat until brown on both sides.
  • Remove the meat and reduce the heat to medium.
  • Add the onions and cook until limp and golden.
  • If the pan is dry, add a few tablespoons of water to the skillet.
  • Lay the meat over the onions and add the bay leaves, thyme, beer and beef stock.
  • Cover tightly and reduce the heat to low.
  • Simmer gently for 30-40 minutes until the meat is very tender.
  • Do not let it boil.
  • Remove the bay leaves and adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper.
  • If the sauce is too thin, remove the meat and raise the heat; boil until the liquid thickens slightly.
  • Serve the steaks topped with the onions and sauce.
  • This is good served with either mashed potatoes or buttered noodles.
